Hickman County is named for Captain Paschal Hickman of the 1st Rifle Regiment, Kentucky Militia. Formed from portions of Livingston and Caldwell Counties in 1821, its initial territory comprised the entire Jackson Purchase.
Columbus, in the northwest of the county on the Mississippi River, was the original county seat. A log structure built in 1823 served as the courthouse. In 1830, the county seat was moved to the more centrally located Clinton.
